Here is another group that was found in the Crimean. The largest beads are about 10 x 20 mm and date to the mid to late first millennium AD. These are no longer in my collection so I cannot study them further, but if I recall they were sort of a coarsely made tan-white glass coated with a thin brick red overlay. They remind me of the later European so-called "green-heart" beads.
